Five Questions to Ask Before Shopping for a Front-Projection System

Read Here    

 

If you’re planning to use the projector in a more casual environment with some room lights and/or windows–or if you simply prefer to watch movies and TV shows with some room lights on–then you’ll probably want more lumens, which generally comes at the expense of a deep black level. These projectors are often categorized as home entertainment projectors instead of home theater projectors, and they often have a smaller, more portable form factor and even integrated speakers so that you don’t have to bring in a separate speaker system (although, truth be told, the quality of these projector speakers leaves a lot to be desired–so you should still consider adding an external speaker solution, even if it’s just a good tabletop option). Home entertainment projectors often carry lower price tags than their home theater counterparts, at least those with light output ratings in the 2,500- to 3,500-lumen range

Philips 55POS9002 Ambilight OLED Review

Last but not least, the risk of permanent screenburn have put off many prospective OLED TV buyers, which is understandable given the self-emissive properties of the display technology. From our experience, OLED is significantly less susceptible to image retention and burn-in than plasma ever was, and the compensation cycles that take place during standby after certain hours of operation do help keep these issues at bay. Of course, the risk still exists however small, especially if displaying static logos on news channels or games for prolonged periods. In Philips’ defence, the POS9002 dims down its screen or goes into a floating logo screensaver mode quicker than any other OLED makes on the market, and offers a manual compensation cycle trigger which wasn’t present on its predecessor, the 55POS901F.”

SVS SB16-Ultra powered subwoofer – Review

 

Read Here   

The Quads and SVS sub rendered clean, solid, full bass reproduction of the sounds of many different instruments—kick drum, bass drum, timpani, and synthesizer. For a review I wrote for the October 1989 issue, I listened to Velodyne’s ULD-18 subwoofer with a recording of John Williams’s Liberty Fanfare, from Lowell Graham and the National Symphonic Winds’ Winds of War and Peace (CD, Wilson Audiophile WCD-8823). The downfiring Velodyne remained silent for the first 55 seconds of this track, then burst into life with the bass drum’s first notes. The bass-drum whack had no unnecessary overtones, no overhang, and disturbed no midrange or treble sounds. The SB16-Ultra delivered the same dense, solid punch with no added sustain, but revealed more of the bass drum’s timbre.”

Pioneer Elite SC-LX901 11.2-Channel AV Receiver $3000 Review

Read Here

 

For CD-resolution sound, I streamed TIDAL extensively. While I love using the TIDAL user interface on my desktop and mobile devices, the Pioneer interface is a text-only folder tree with artists, albums, or songs–so it can become tedious to search for a particular artist, album, or song if you have a large saved library, as I do. It was still great to have the convenience of TIDAL on board, but I did find that I didn’t search new music as much on the Pioneer as I do with my other devices.”
